Forge – a better on-the-go coffee & tea experience
new morning companion, the CamelBak Forge, is available for purchase in
two different sizes and a variety of color options. Select your size
and color options below and forever reinvent the way that you enjoy hot

Forge ahead without spills on early-morning rides or on
your way to the trailhead in the morning Sometimes water just isn’t
enough—that’s why we reinvented the travel mug for a better on-the-go
coffee and tea experience. The double-walled, vacuum-insulated steel
vessel keeps 12 oz. or 16 oz. of coffee or tea piping hot for over 4
hours, with an impact cap that prevents dents or cracks if you drop it.
When you need to keep your eyes on the trail, the self-sealing cap lets
you drink one-handed, and the smaller 12 oz. design makes it easy to
toss in your pack without worrying about leaks or spills. For frequent
sipping, just press the top button to lock the cap open. The cap won’t
collect grime, either—just pop up the arms for easy cleaning in the sink
or dishwasher.

  • Self-sealing cap eliminates spills and is easy to open and close with one hand for sipping while you’re on the go
  • Impact-resistant construction stands up to frequent use
  • Use the loop in the cap to carry the bottle in the crook of a finger
  • CamelBak Forge Vacuum Mug is dishwasher-safe for easy cleaning
  • Sizes – 16 ounces (MSRP $30) and 12 ounces (MSRP $29)
  • 12 oz. fits under most coffee machines.
  • Colors: 12 oz Steel Blue, Stormy Orange, Ghost Berry – 16 oz. : Black Smoke, Blue Steel, Ghost Berry, Olive Sky, Midnight Lilac
  • Dimensions: 12 oz – 7.48″ x 4.13″ and 16 oz – 8.85″ x 4.13″

Grams Thoughts => I
like the idea of the trigger finger for opening and closing of the
Forge, making it easy to use with one hand. It has quite a few great
features, such as being dishwasher-safe, keeping liquids hot for 4 hours
and impact-resistant construction. Looking forward to seeing how the
system works and real world testing of the spill-proof and opening and
temperature regulation capabilities.
